Cloud storage company Copy.com that offered unlimited storage space and huge bonuses for referrals, has made an official announcement that it is going to shut down its business from May 1st, 2016.
Copy.com along with CudaDrive which are subsidiaries of Barracuda Networks have issued a public notice yesterday, which is as follows-
“We are announcing today that the Copy and CudaDrive services will be discontinued from May 1st, 2016. Both the companies have provided easy-to-use cloud file services and sharing functionality to millions of users from past 4+ years. However, as both the company’s business focus and objective has shifted, they are making a difficult decision to discontinue the Copy and CudaDrive services and allocate those resources elsewhere” said Rod Mathews, VP & GM, storage business, Barracuda Networks.
Till date, Copy was touted as runners up for the best cloud storage services, mostly because there was virtually no limit on the amount of storage, which users could upload. But now, all is going to end by mid this year and users need to migrate their content to other platforms by then.
Users who paid a premium for the plans will be refunded or credited for different storage services.
